Meet the Team
Alan - Partner
From a farming background, married a farmers daughter, Audrey (Hence the A & A)! & established A & A Animal hotel in August 1993. They both have many years experience of caring for animals and it was an ambition for a long time to open an animal hotel, where people can feel at home leaving their much loved pets in our care.
Nicky - Partner
Having grown up with animals all my life, it was of no surprise that I wanted to work with animals in the future. Working with horses upon first leaving school, until I was able to get a position at our local vets to train and be a veterinary nurse.
Marrying a farmer, Andrew, started a family, Georgina and Emma andI then started to work at home in the animal hotel. Being made a Partner in August 2002.
With both families living on site, we can make sure guests are safe and secure at all times.

I have worked at A & A Animal hotel for two years now. I first came to A & A to complete my work experience, as I was studying my top-up course to my Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma at Reaseheath College. Working at A & A has also allowed me to apply my dog grooming skills and also completing a dog first aid course has helped me improve my skills.

In my spare time I love going on days out with my family, reading, gaming and I also have a passion for cars.
